Taco Salad

Who doesn't love Taco Salad? We love it!! We also haven't had it in a really long time. I bought all the stuff to make it, and we ate it last night for dinner. Yummy! It was so good. Everyone had their own version of what they wanted, but their plates were clean when they were done! While we were each "building" our salads, I looked over at Ben's plate and his looked so pretty! I think he thought I was making fun of him when I told him it was so "pretty" that I wanted to take a picture! ha ha ha :) I wasn't joking, and here are the pictures to prove it. He's gonna laugh at me when he sees that I blogged his dinner plate. LOL

Here it is - Doritos, tortilla chips, taco meat, lettuce, black beans, kidney beans, can corn and sour cream. Well, then he tells me that he wasn't done "building" his yet. He needed to finish adding the toppings.

So, here's his plate completed -he added shredded cheese and salsa to top it off! So, was I lying? Doesn't his plate look "pretty"?? Well, I guess the salsa looks a little messy, but everything else looks perfect & colorful.
Nathaniel loves beans, so he finished those off last night including the corn. So, I had a mini taco salad w/ just the basics for lunch. Mmmmm you gettin' hungry yet?

Also, I guess it was about a couple months ago, maybe longer, not really sure. Anyway, one Friday evening a girl knocked on our door carrying a basket with loaves of bread. She asked if we wanted to buy one. She said they bake bread for a store (or something, don't remember) and had some left over. Well, they looked delicious. She said it's a Swedish recipe. Doesn't matter to me what kind of recipe it is cuz it's yummy!! They came by a couple weeks later, so we bought another one. It's kind of like French bread but with a softer outside. We just tear pieces off to eat it. I guess we became one of their regular customers, so now they stop by every Friday night between 6-7pm. Well, our plates were so BIG last night that we didn't eat it yet. So, I wrapped it up & we'll have it with our dinner tonight. I just realized last night that no one tore into the bread (because usually the kids tear into as I barely take it to the kitchen), so I thought I'd take a picture of it.

Ok there's my funny food stories! What are YOU having for dinner? If you want some ideas, you can check out Kristy's Recipe blog. She has some really good lookin' stuff. She has a picture for each recipe she's posted, too. She's so awesome!!
